Qatar's Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has invited firms to bid by 16 October for package 1 of the roads and infrastructure for South of the al-Meshaf scheme.
The package covers the construction of roads and associated facilities for approximately 117 hectares of a predominantly residential community.
Several other packages are planned for the scheme, called QS049. Bids for package 3, which covers 64 hectares of development, are due on 4 September while bids for package 4, covering 210 hectares, are due on 18 September.
The proposed work for package 3 includes:
- Road network with fully paved carriageways, including signalised junctions and at-grade roundabouts with provision for pedestrians and cyclists.
- On street parking layout and configuration.
- Kerblines and footways adjacent to roads.
- Road signs, including signage gantries, lighting and road markings.
- Complete surface water and groundwater drainage system.
- Section of Al-Wakra tunnel for surface water and groundwater.
- Advance direction signs and street signs.
- Emergency flood area 4 (EFA 4).
- Pump station complete with infrastructure including header tank, mechanical and electrical equipment, control and instrumentation, treatment facilities, ancillary buildings, access roads, surface water twin rising mains, groundwater rising main, valve chambers, drainage.
- Groundwater discharge and monitoring boreholes.
- Complete foul sewer network, including house connection up to property boundary and removal of septic tanks within the right of way.
Infrastructure development for the 2,300-hectare QS049 project area, comprising the Al-Wukair community, originally belonged to Qatar’s multibillion-dollar Expressway Programme. However, the project, including its design, has since been transferred to the Local Roads and Drainage Programme (LRDP), which, similar to the Expressway Programme, is being implemented by Ashghal.
South of Al-Meshaf is located approximately 5 kilometres west of Al-Wakra Municipality.
Overall, QS049 covers 9,726 residential plots, 1,600 commercial plots, four schools, three reserved government plots, 21 mosques, 13 parks and 226 open space or green areas.
